The New England Knowledge Corridor

Former governor Michael S. Dukakis talks about the planned Knowledge Corridor. The corridor would carry passengers from Springfield north to Montpelier, Burlington, and Montreal, connecting the five-college area in and around Amherst with universities such as Dartmouth and the University of Vermont. This would encourage the kind of academic and technological excellence that is the key to New England’s future.

Earlier this month, I mentioned incorporating the universities of the Big Ten with the Midwest's HSR plans. I could not be more excited for, or envious of, New England's planned Knowledge Corridor and the positive example it could set for future corridor planning.
